INDIANAPOLIS—Way up at the north end of Mass Ave in downtown Indianapolis, a cheery nonprofit bookstore called Indy Reads Books offers both used and new books to customers. Book-buyers get to read classics and new bestsellers while helping to support Indy Reads, a local nonprofit whose goal is 100% literacy for all. Profits from Indy Reads Books, one of very few downtown bookstores, go directly to Indy Reads to support their free instructional programs in literacy, English langauge and digital skills. These programs are provided through innovative Community Classroom programs at sites around Marion County.
Volunteers from Williams Randall helped the bookstore get ready for the spring season by using their crafting skills to help the staff create Henri Matisse-inspired decor. Seeing our handiwork on display will be an added bonus if you make a trip to buy books and support such a noble cause this spring.
